Combination of EU open boarders, China Silk Road Money, believing garbage info from the WHO, and lack of good leadership that cares for their native population bite Europe right in the ass.

Due to their action it allow coronavirus to get a foothold over here.

I think the reaction to this is way overblown from a health point of view, the real issue is going to be supply chain issues.

I'm on Drew's side, largely, but still agree with postponing all large-crowd events.

If you break this whole thing down to its base idea it's just a simple math problem, specifically that there are not enough critical care beds to give the people who will need them proper care. And the only way to mitigate that problem is to spread out when we all get it, and that means not all getting it at once, which means staying away from each other.

Basic math.

Exactly what I have been saying. In fact, lack of our ability to test has kept panic under control (except for toilet paper). The national emergency thing is helping to tamp back transmission. I would gess there are already 10's or hundreds of thousands of cases and people have simply recovered.

Obviously what happened in china. They likely had 100's of millions of cases.

Again, I am not saying the whole thing is overblown. Just saying the mortality rate is way overblown.
